A dark and tender post-apocalyptic love story set in the aftermath of a bloody war.
In a city where humans and Darklings are now separated by a high wall and tensions between the two races still simmer after a terrible war, sixteen-year-olds Ash Fisher, a half-blood Darkling, and Natalie Buchanan, a human and the daughter of the Emissary, meet and do the unthinkable—they fall in love. Bonded by a mysterious connection that causes Ash’s long-dormant heart to beat, Ash and Natalie first deny and then struggle to fight their forbidden feelings for each other, knowing if they’re caught, they’ll be executed—but their feelings are too strong.
When Ash and Natalie then find themselves at the center of a deadly conspiracy that threatens to pull the humans and Darklings back into war, they must make hard choices that could result in both their deaths.

I must say that I adore this book cover. It is unique, and so perfect. Love the flower, and the colors. And the city in the background. Then, of course, I adore the summary! Gaaah. Cannot wait for this book. So excited for it all. :) Just hoping the romance will be good; and no triangle :p <3 I am super excited to get to know Ash. Hih. And I cannot wait to read about that world :D Sound awesome.

This does sound amazing--and such a cool cover!ReplyDelete
That is a really lovely cover. If you hadn't said it was a flower, I would have never noticed. I always thought it was a rock shattering. Great summary as well, kind of reminds me of The Immortal Rules in a way.ReplyDelete
God it feels like all the books I've been reading recently have had love triangles. I hope this doesn't have one too! I can't wait to read it. Amazing pick, Carina! :)ReplyDelete
By the way, I got The Hallowed Ones! I can't wait to start it soon. :)
Thank you. <3 Yeah, I really really really hope there won't be a triangle :) Have read enough of those :\Delete
